NextGEN Gallery is a full integrated Image Gallery plugin for WordPress with dozens of options and features.

NextGEN Gallery is a full integrated Image Gallery plugin for WordPress with a slideshow option. Before I started writing the plugin I studied all the existing image and gallery plugins for WordPress. Some of them are really good and well designed, but the gap I filled was a simple administration system at the back end which can also handle multiple galleries.

Features :

  • Templates : You can add custom templates for your theme.
  • Media RSS feed : Add the Cooliris Effect to your gallery
  • Role settings : Each gallery has a author
  • AJAX based thumbnail generator : No more server limitation during the batch process
  • Copy/Move : Copy or move images between galleries
  • Sortable Albums : Create your own sets of images
  • Upload or pictures via a zip-file (Not in Safe-mode)
  • Watermark function : You can add a watermark image or text
  • JavaScript Effect : Use any available popular image effect : Shutter, Thickbox, Lightbox or Highslide
  • Multiple CSS Stylesheet : Use a nice shadow effect for your thumbnails with your own CSS file
  • Slideshow : Full integrated slideshow as jQuery or Flash solution
  • TinyMCE : Button integration for easy adding the gallery tags
  • Sidebar Widget : Show a slideshow, random or recent picture at your sidebar
  • Language support : Translated in more than 30 languages
  • Translation downloader : Download with one click the new translation file
  • Upload tab integration : You have access to all pictures via the upload tab
  • Tag support for images : Append related images to your post, create a image tag-cloud
  • Meta data support : Import EXIF, IPTC or XMP meta data
  • Sort images feature
  • Support for XML Sitemaps : Add Images to your sitemaps with the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin

 Installation :

  1. Install & Activate the plugin
  2. Add a gallery and upload some images (the main gallery folder must have write permission)
  3. Go to your post/page an enter the tag ‘[nggallery id=x]’ or ‘[slideshow id=x]’.
